Stampendous and Whisker Graphics Finale!

Wow, it's been a fun week of idea sharing between the Stampendous and Whisker Graphics design teams! I hope you've had time to enjoy the creations this week. 

I am finally settled into temporary housing in Cincinnati (until our house is built), and am still trying to find the right boxes for each event, but I'm getting there! I was smart and kept my Whisker Graphic supplies where I could find them quickly. Of course, when we hop, we offer prizes!

With all the fabulous inspiration that we have been sharing from both design teams, we thought some of you would like to play along with these great products too, so there are PRIZES! Just comment along the hops each day and leave a thoughtful comment for the designers. Winners will be announced Monday, May 9th.

Three prize packages consisting of one each –
Divine Twine Diva – Crushed Lavender Solid
Divine Twine Diva – Crushed Lavender Stripe
Divine Twine Diva – Dried Celadon Solid
Divine Twine Diva – Dried Celadon Stripe
An assortment of bags in a variety of sizes and patterns.
Winners choice of a Stampendous Cling Rubber Stamp Set and Matching Dies (from available stock)

These three winners MUST have a US mailing address (or territories or military).

But wait! Additionally, we will give away one prize to an Australian winner courtesy of our distributor there – The Stencil Specialist – which will consist of distributor’s choice of one stamp, one stencil and a surprise goodie.

Today I combined a cute House Mouse stamp from the Stampendous April Catalog with some of the cute little colored tags and Divine Twine that Whiskers Graphics so generously provided us, to create a birthday card.

"Time to Celebrate!"
The adorable Snail Mail stamp (HMCP49) would be great for a belated birthday wish too (get it...because you sent the card "snail mail"!). Here I've paired it with the Celebrate Birthday stamp (CRL266), but it would be perfect with the Celebrate Late stamp (CRL267) too!

Snail Mail stamp (HMCP49), stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with Copic Markers

Add some cute Divine Twine to hold on the packages!
I cut 1" off two small tags, edged them with a black marker, put a little twine in and attached them to the back of the Snail Mail image, then stamped the third tag with the senntiment and attached it with foam tape
Today's list of designers:
